I got my stent out yesterday. Much easier than getting it in.
I had to have a general anesthetic to get it and took it out in the dr's office.
I still have some infection. I am supposed to have another scan in a month. I told him that I have a plane ticket for then so he moved it up a week so we can see if everything is staying open before I travel.
He said he "hoped" this helps things. I didn't have any thoughts that it might not! I choose to still think that way.
One thing is that I am glad that I had cancelled my rhizotomy because the back pain was most definitely from my kidneys instead of the AS. We can really get tunnel vision as can the drs.
Thanks for your concern and encouragement.
Have a great day. Stay cool. It is another very hot day in OK.
